The Chicago total matched that of Philadelphia Flyers and therefore the two teams will each receive as a result of the first-ever tie in the Vezina Trophy goaltending race since the inception of the award in 1927. But only Bernie Parent of the Flyers and Esposito will have their names inscribed on the silverware because their two back-up Veisor of the Hawks and Bob Taylor of the appeared in less than the minimum 25 games.

Phone 328-4850 The 450SE Sedari costs over Other models start from Here's why every Mercedes-Benz is an exceptional investment. Sensible size, reasonable weight, good mileage, safety and resale value. The Mercedes-Benz FR SOME MANUFACTURERS, a car with all jf these qualities is years away. Every Mercedes-Benz Sedan has them all right now. Consider these qualities in more detail 1 Sensible size, reasonable weight. Art example is the 450SE Sedan shown above. Smaller than North America's best-selling sedan outside, but inside, big car room. And it weighs nearly Haifa ton less than the lightest domestic luxury car. 2 Good gasoline mileage. A smaller, more efficient engine with computerized elec- tronic fuel injection, reasonable weight and a low drag shape These are some of the reasons why a Mercedes-Benz 450SE gets up to 25% better mileage than domestic luxury sedans. And without sacrificing performance. Bear in mind, 'these fuel-saving advantages are found in the Mercedes-Benz with our largest engine. Our 6- or 4-cylinder models offer even greater mileage benefits. 3 Commitment to safety. For instance, the Mercedes-Benz 450SE Sedan combines over fifty separate and significant automotive safety elements all engineered to complement one another. No other manufacturer makes safety a more important element in car design. And no other manufacturer has held so long a commitment to better automobile safety as Mercedes-Benz. 4 Best resale value. Advanced engineering and fuel economy are two reasons why, after three years, Mercedes-Benz automobiles have a better resale value than the Big 3's standard or luxury cars. And not just best. Who says so? The automobile industry All of a sudden everyone wants design efficiency in an automobile. Mercedes-Benz has had it for years. Perhaps it is time you experienced it.
